How do I deploy Kong with HTTP Load Balancer on GKE


#1

I am trying to setup Kong on GKE with HTTP Load Balancing. GKE allow creation of HTTP Load Balancer with Ingress Resource. It’s documented here.
https://cloud.google.com/kubernetes-engine/docs/tutorials/http-balancer

Problem is HTTP Load Balancer setup default health check rule which expects HTTP 200 status to the GET requests on / path. Kong doesn’t provide that out of the box. Does Kong provide any other health check endpoint that I can use with GKE Ingress?
